I would definitely talk to a dr, not necessarily because of rabies but because of a tetanus shot. If you get a puncture wound from a mouse bite, that could let in infection or the bacteria that causes tetanus. That doctor will know if it's necessary to vaccinate you against rabies. Rabies vaccines can be pretty nasty as far as side effects go, so getting vaccinated against rabies can't be taken lightly. Your doctor will know if there is a large enough risk to give you the rabies vaccination, if you need a tetanus shot depending on when you last had one, and if there is any chance of infection.
